Alex talks Bethenny's new show, Jill's change of heart, and Kelly's bullying claims.

Part two of the Reunion has come and gone and my head is spinning. That might be because Simon and I got up at 4am yesterday in Washington, DC to drive home to get the chums to school on time. By the way, did you hear there’s a Real Housewives of DC coming our way in August? Someone's sneaking up the beltway ... well, maybe I’d better stop before I have too much fun with this. We had four signings this weekend in the DC/Baltimore/Philly area and I want to say a huge THANKS to everyone; we were overwhelmed! If you want to see when we’ll be in your area hit up our family website which has the schedule and a place to order.

Do I think Jill was happy for Bethenny when she got her own show? Yes, actually I do. I also think she was jealous as h-e-double hockey sticks, because she wanted it to be a show for the two of them, like Laverne and Shirley. Yes, she really did tell us to boycott Bethenny. Yes, even recently Jill also called places like the Wendy Williams show to complain about Bethenny getting airtime and not her. She made that call this spring – a couple of months after the season was filmed. That leads me to believe that all this remorse and change of tune is based on the viewers’ reaction, not a real change of heart about the loss of a friendship.

Sonja joined us and the air got lighter ... she is a hoot and I’m only sorry we didn’t meet 10 years ago. We got to talking about sex and one-night stands, and for the most part I think we are all on the same page. Whether you’ve known someone for an evening or for a year, the possibility still exists that it might only be one time, and no, a one-night stand doesn’t equal unprotected sex – that’s a bad idea all around.
